The Crazy Boys Orchestra was one of the most famous Hot Jazz bands in Barcelona during the early 30s, even though, like many other spanish bands, didn't record many Jazz songs probably because the companies thoguht it wouldn't sell. However some jazz records were made like this one. This version of "Tom Thumb's drum" is a rarity and was sold (or maybe given as present), incredibly as it seems, at a tailor shop in Barcelona. The flip included a vaudeville song recorded by the same band composed years before for the shop and used for promotion. Tthe orchestra was directed by pianist Martín Lizcano de la Rosa, who later in the 40s became one of Spain's biggest swing band leaders. Even though this was released, as the label says, as a "special/particular pressing record" and shows no numer on the label (just the matrix) there's a serial number on the dead wax, Odeon 183.529, which shows it was probably released on 1932, a time when Barcelona was in a Hot Jazz fever.
